Meet our Love Where You Live winner, Kathy O’Dea

We recently launched a new edition of our ‘love where you live’ campaign, inviting you to share your memorable moments celebrating the King’s Coronation with the exciting opportunity to win some truly fantastic prizes!

We were overwhelmed by the number of responses we received from individuals across the country. As we begin to unveil the winners, we are thrilled to introduce you to Kathy, who lives in the picturesque village of Ellenbrook in Greater Manchester

Kathy cherished the Coronation Day as she spent it with her beloved mum, who sadly passed away a few weeks later at the age of 92. 

In a beautiful tribute to her mum, Kathy shared: “ My mum was a lovely, fun, loving family lady who had been married to my dad for 67 years. She will be dearly missed by her husband, kids and grandkids, and her memory will forever be held close in our hearts.”

“I was so happy I celebrated the Coronation with my mum. After dropping my dad at a pensioner’s party, I went to the hospital to see her, bringing her a dress-up crown and red, white, and blue beads. I spent the day talking, hugging her, and watching the King on television.”

Kathy, who worked as a deputy head teacher, is incredibly close with her family. In fact, when she got married 20 years ago, finding a house nearby to her mum and dad was of the utmost importance. 

“I knew I wanted to live near my parents and, luckily, our search was really easy,” she says. “I fell in love with our current home as soon as I saw it – I even put in a secret bid without telling my husband!”

With its blend of old-world charm, beautiful surrounding woodlands and tight-knit community, it’s easy to see why Kathy has found her forever home in Ellenbrook.

“Where I live in tranquil and very pretty. But it’s not just the idyllic scenery that makes my town so special; it’s the bustling sense of community. There’s a real neighbourhood spirit with plenty of local clubs, volunteer groups and community gatherings.”
